Nonesuch Records gets major respect for being gutsy enough to release the quantity of Mbalax music that they do and getting this particularly West African sound out to a broader audience. This record by the Youssou N'Dour sees a departure from his usual melange of Mbalax and Afropop. This time he sings in Arabic (rather than Wolof/French) and fuses traditionally Islamic musical instrumentation, verses and idioms with those of his native Senegal. No, that is not a paradox!
